The mind and the heart

The mind and the heart are two complex things One speaks in logic while the other just sings But here I sit at the dawn of this day Wondering which of mine to listen to and obey My mind says I'm losing her and she won't return But in my heart for her I strongly yearn I don't know what to do or even what I should say Can I go back or do I beg her to stay These feelings inside they scare me to hell They ring around through me just like a big bell They resonate, duplicate and fill me to the top Till all I can do is grab my head and shout stop But I think it matters not at the end of the day I know I must return to her anyway These feelings I have they are ooh so strong It seems they will go on for a very very long (time) And if she should want me to stay away I think then instead for the rest of my days I will think of her and of what she has done She has taught me that she is the only one I just hope to god that what we had hasn't gone For I would scour the earth until it was found And if she might find it in her heart to take me back I want to be with her and never look back.

    Well done Taylor, reading your poem was like looking at a painting, painted by Vincent van Gogh. The impressionism was exquisite. Very tasty. Doug

    Hello Taylor, We wish the mind and heart wouldn't be so complex. It sucks at time. A good poem and like the expressed emotions. Bhavna

    Excellent and touching especially to learn how a man can feels for a woman. I can relate to this also. I love this!

    your poem is very beautiful, shows a great deal of passion and emotion. However, it would be easier to read if you divided into stanzas and leave out the unnecessary article words such as because, and, that. this is how I would have written the last nine lines: She has taught me she was the one I hope the love we had has not gone I would scour the earth until I found a reason for her to take be back If only she knew how much I adored the way she was when i had her before

    I took your advice about formatting the poem to make it easier to read, and I agree it looks much better. Thank you. As for the ending, I think chaotic words born from the rending of mind, heart, and soul should be destined to remain chaotic.
